  1. Virtanen, Horvat, and Boeser - new line

    I don’t wanna be that guy, but you can’t compare Elias’ hockey IQ to Sven’s. Pettersson might be the Canuck with the third highest hockey IQ this decad.
  2. I don't know man, we're talking about the GM that traded Hart winner Taylor Hall for 13 point Adam Larsson.
  3. More like 50 points. Man, does that deal look horrible. He's tied for third in caphit in the entire league.
  4. What they should do is open it for all the other leagues. The system right now is crazy, basically the team that drafts you owns you until you're 27. Also, why would you want less players to take the NCAA route? Them getting an education is nothing but a good thing. Plus, no high end prospects have chosen not to sign and go UFA. This is a non issue.
  5. Every time someone brings up the Jets or the Leafs I think about us drafting Jake instead of Nylander or Ehlers, man did Bennning screw that one up!
  6. Heyo! So obviously the team hasn't announced at what game the Sedins will have their jerseys retired, but we all know it's going to happen this year. I've been a Sedin fan ever since they played for Modo, and became a Canucks and NHL fan when they moved over here, so being in Vancouver for their retirement would mean a lot to me. Me and my girlfriend have been talking about making the trip over from Sweden for it, do you guys think it'd be possible (affordable) for us to get a pair of tickets to the game that night, after the fact that it's announced that they're gonna have their ceremony that night? I was thinking that we'd use Airbnb for a place to stay, is that the best choice or do you have another suggestion? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. I don't get why people value Marner so much higher than Nylander. They've got almost identical stat lines, no?
  8. I just realized, Bieksa's deal with Anaheim is up this summer. I'd love it if we could get him signed for cheap on a one year deal. He's one of my favorite players in the entire league and would be a great mentor now that the Sedins are gone (plus, he's jacked as $&!#).
  9. Can or should Jake be our Tom Wilson?

    Burrows scores 35 goals one year, Wilson has cracked the ten goal mark once.
  10. Thread Titles 5 Years From Now?

    This was actually really accurate!
  11. Hypocritical Racism

    There are people alive who've lived through racial segregation in America. There are people who remember a time when people of color weren't allowed to eat in some restaurants, attend some schools or sit where they wanted on buses. You really don't see the difference between black and white racism?
  12. Elias' team Växsjö just won the SHL playoffs, sweeping Skellefteå in the finals. Elias was named playoff MVP. I thought that this deserved a thread of its own. He is also the highest scoring under 20 player in Elitserien/SHL history (there are some familiar names on that list....) Article about Elias in one of Sweden's biggest newspapers: I translated it really quick so there's probably a few major mistakes, but you'll understand most of it.
  13. Man, I’m gonna miss them sooo much.
  14. Seattle expansion team realignment??

    I'd move Arizona to Québec.
